Arrivals spark pride around the world

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

How wonderful that for a change, the nation perhaps even the world, is focused on good news. I wish that every arrival could be heralded with such a warm welcome.
Perhaps this week we could do just that, even if it is over the kitchen table.
Imagine pulling out a photo from the arrival of their birth and reminding your child how proud you were at the time.
Perhaps you think your kids are too old for that, or perhaps they live too far away? I say put pen to paper and share some warm memory of that day long ago.
If you enjoy sharing old stories, drop that card in the mail and let the memory making begin.
If you aren’t that warm and fuzzy person, seal it in an envelope and put it along with some important papers for a grand discovery at a later date.
Maybe you don’t have children of your own. If not, share with someone your pride of that person’s arrival. It might be a niece, a nephew or close family friend. We all have some adult in our lives that isn’t related by blood but has been an important figure. Sometimes those are the best relationships.
Those old stories get lost in the shuffle and every year after, oh, I’ll say , age 30, don’t come as easy from the memory banks, but they’re randomly discovered more like an old paper filing system.
